Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Genealogy Research Trips

GeneaChat: Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Genealogy Research Trips

Summer in the northern hemisphere means many of us are planning research trips. We have created our lists of things to see and do, and research plans have been made to keep us focused as we visit cemeteries, archives, libraries, and museums.

Where are you going? The next county, state, across the county or another country?

What are you planning on doing and who will you be researching? Are you going with other family members or a genealogy research tour group?

If you’ve already taken a genealogy research trip, tell us about it! Where did you go and what did you discover? Do you have any tips to help others plan for a successful adventure?

Many genealogy conferences, workshops, and conferences are available this time of year. Have you or will you be attending any? If you have in the past, share your experiences!

The post “Genealogy Road Trip- Why Didn’t I Take Them” shares where I wish I had gone with some of my ancestors. Why didn’t I take them back to the places where their life events took place and have them share their stories?

What I Did on my Summer Vacation,” tells about a summer of research, learning, and discoveries.

Although not held in the summer months, I have written many posts about attending RootsTech.

The Top Ten Reasons for Attending RootsTech 2018” explains why I feel it’s an important event evert not to miss.

Fun with original records in the South Carolina Department of Archives and History was the topic or the post “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing Baby!
